The fundamental goal of teaching is to foster a positive attitude that allows children to learn. By providing the necessary skills and an engaging environment, all students have the capability to achieve their individual goals. I believe effective learning requires collaboration between teacher, student and parents. I expect student preparedness, cooperation, responsibility, and accountability. I will instill in my students the value of lifelong learning. I will show them that creativity and fun are part of learning.
